The streaming of song titles is something that either nobody wants to deal
with
or "it works fine for me" (after I spent 3 weeks working on it).

in setting use_meta_data 1 and using an older version of winamp
(www.oldversion.com) the thing works. Otherwise, recent vers of sonique and
winamp don't work. Why? Don't know.
